T – Turkey bush and Texas longhorn
This photo was taken in 2021 when I was travelling from Darwin to Broome on a bus tour with fellow Tasmanians. This flower, when squashed, is used by aboriginals as an insect repellent. It was found at an information area on our way to Kakadu in the Northern Territory.
While driving through Texas I often stopped at signs explaining history of the area and these Texas longhorns were seen nearby the sign for the JA Ranch at the Palo Duro Canyon.
Such an interesting plant! I can always do with more natural mosquito repellents 🙂
